Catch a Wave

Okay... here's the deal... Sketchy Thursdays had this really great sketch and I thought it would be fun to use it for a LO... but funny thing.... my LO looks nothing like the sketch!! How does that happen?! I guess once I had my papers picked (which I really liked and wanted to use) the sketch kind of needed to be rearranged to fit with my pictures and papers!! LOL!! So.... here is the sketch....
And here is my LO....
Seriously... you would never know that I started with the sketch... Oh well, the good news is that I really like the way it turned out!! :) And we all know that is all that really matters!! LOL!!

These are some more pictures of my son surfing in Maui.... I seriously never thought we were going to get him to come back home with us.... he LOVED it!! You may remember the other LO I did of him surfing ... Surf's Up... and I think this goes really well with it without looking too planned.... after all, he is 17, we wouldn't want his LOs to look planned!!  :)  You can find the other LO by clicking HERE

Supplies used:
Papers: DCWV - Fun In The Sun
Cricut: Sentimentals (Waves) and Graphically speaking

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and looking! Your comments mean so much!! Barb :)

LOVE it! I can still see the sketch in it. I know what you mean about kind of losing the way of the sketch. Happens to me all the time. But you know what, I think sometimes they just give us the springboard inspiration and our own creative style takes over.....and girlfriend, I love your creative style!
Blessings,

Fantastic LO, Barb! Amazing color choices and love the pics! Ditto above--a sketch is just a springboard to your own creativity ;D, and you hit the mark!!!
